<OPTION = value=3D1>Accountant</OPTION>
<OPTION = value=3D501>Accountant Inventory to Accountant = Payble
<OPTION value=3D304>Accountant Payable</OPTION>
<OPTION value=3D84>Accounts Assistant</OPTION>

Answer Source

Change the value attribute in the option tag. You need to have quotes surrounding the value of your id.

<option value='id'>XYZ</option>


<option value="id">XYZ</option>

You can use either of the quotations. Single or double.

For reference check: XML Attributes
